After sitting on a runway in Roswell, NM for more than 30 years, a significant piece of Elvis memorabilia is about to go under the auctioneer's gavel. The King's private JetStar airplane will be auctioned on May 27 by GWS Auctions in California. The opening bid is $10,000, but the auction house estimates the value of the airplane, which is missing its engines, at between $2 and $3.5 million. The aircraft is said to be the "lost" jet that Elvis owned with his father, Vernon Presley. Airbus Corporate Jets has launched a private jet version of its new A330neo. Called the ACJ330neo, it will fly 25 passengers 9,400 nm or 20 hours, enough to fly nonstop from Europe to Australia. The ACJ330neo cabin readily accommodates conference/dining areas, a private office, bedroom, bathroom and guest

AMA Drone Report 05.25.17: Court Kills FAA Model Drone Registration, DJI Spark!

Also: AMA Reacts To Court, FAA Reaction, AUVSI Reaction, Kittyhawk Flight Deck APP

Score one for us little guys... As you may have heard, the U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington, D.C. has ruled that the FAA violated the FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012 when it required the registration of model aircraft, including drones, that are flown strictly for recreational purposes, and has vacated the Registration Rule for those aircraft. In Section 336 of the law, Congress specified that the FAA "may not promulgate any rule or regulation regarding a model aircraft.” The Act defines “model aircraft” as “an unmanned aircraft that is — (1) capable of sustained flight in the atmosphere; (2) flown within visual line of sight of the person operating the aircraft; and (3) flown for hobby or recreational purposes.” Maryland attorney John Taylor challenged the regist

Airborne-Unmanned 05.23.17: Courts Nix Model Regs, Autonymous Flt, WATT 300

Also: King Schools Update, Kittyhawk APP, Robird And Integrated Drone Solutions, ICAO Drone Tracking

The unmanned community got a bit of a jolt late last week when the US Court of Appeals shot down the FAA’s regulation of recreational unmanned aircraft systems... Industry reaction has been swift... AUVSI has some concerns with the aftermath of the ruling, as President and CEO, Brian Wynne clearly expressed, “AUVSI is disappointed with the decision today by the U.S. Court of Appeals to reject the FAA’s rule for registering recreational unmanned aircraft systems. A UAS registration system is important to promote accountability and responsibility by users of the national airspace, and helps create a culture of safety that deters careless and reckless behavior. We plan to work with Congress on a legislative solution that will ensure continued accountability across the entire aviation

RFP: ANN Considering Future Options For HQ Relocation

Some Aggressive Upgrades For ANN, Aero-TV, and Airborne May Require New Digs

It's been in development for years, but we're getting to a point where we think we can pull off something TRULY REMARKABLE -which will require us to make BIG CHANGES. So... ANN may be looking for a new home... hopefully, a permanent one. We are mulling over THE most significant upgrades we've ever undertaken and realizing that we may need to make significant operational modifications to accomodate them.

Thrush Aircraft Delivers 100th 510G

Major milestone Reached For GE-Powered Agricultural Aircraft

As the Thrush factory’s large delivery hangar doors slid open to begin another day – a new 510G sat at the front of the space, sunlight glinting off its wings. Although the aircraft’s distinctive red and white company livery looked similar to other 510G’s coming off the assembly line, this one was quite special – as it was the 100th 510G to be completed by Thrush since the aircraft received FAA certification in 2012.
